What's Coming Up

  • Good Friday

    April 19th at 7:30pm

    Come remember Jesus' last hours with a tenebrae service. This service dates to the 12th century, and in Latin means a service of shadows. Led by the Chancel Choir, we will hear the story of Jesus' last moments as candles are extinguished, ending with the sancturary in darkness.

  • Easter in Alexandria

    April 21st at 9:30 and 11am

    You are invited to celebrate Easter with worship is at 9:30 and 11:00am. This joyful celebration will feature music from our adult vocal choirs, one of our handbell choirs, the King Street Brass Quintet, and organ. The services will conclude with congregational participation in singing of G.F. Handel's Hallelujah Chorus from Messiah. You are invited to bring cut flowers to decorate the cross on the church lawn as we rejoice in Jesus' resurrection!

  • New Adult Bible Study on 2 Corinthians 7:00pm Sundays starting April 28

    What is 2 Corinthians all about? Paul's second letter to the Corinthians explores the meaning of the cross in terms of personal suffering--his own, and that of all the Messiah's people. If in Galatians he is angry, if in Philippians he is joyful, in this letter his deep sorrow and the raw wounds of his own recent suffering are very apparent. Yet Paul is determined to view all of his suffering and all of the troubles of the world through the lens of the gospel. These studies by Tom Wright on this powerful epistle point us toward the strange comfort to be found in the suffering, death and resurrection-life of Jesus, the Lord of the world. Questions or to RSVP contact Christian White christian@fairlingtonumc.org.
